This is a great opportunity to study accounting software as a short course or as part of a series of courses alongside the Access Award in Bookkeeping, the Access Award in Accounting Software and the Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping. These courses can be studied back-to-back over a year or alternatively individual courses can be taken based on what you want.
With this AAT qualification, you can build on your knowledge of accounting software packages from the Level 1 Access Award in Accounting Software - or you can enter at this level if you already have previous knowledge. You will learn practical skills, including using accounting software, entering accounting transactions and producing a range of reports.
AAT does not set any prerequisites for the study of this qualification.
However, for the best chance of success, we recommend that students begin their studies with a good standard of English and maths.
All assessments in this qualification:
As part of your AAT course, you will need to purchase resource/text books to aid your revision. There may also be the additional cost of registration/subscription fees and exams (which can be discussed at interview).
AAT Fees = £48
Books = £20 (approx)
Assessments = £70 per assessment
AAT Fee and the cost for first exams is included.
You can progress to one of our other AAT programmes. Students completing the AAT Foundation Award in Accounting Software may wish to complete the Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping alongside it as a complementary qualification. This will give them an understanding of both manual bookkeeping and the practical use of accounting software.
As a Customer Service apprentice, Natasha Thomas sailed into a new career with classic narrow boat company Avante.
Her placement with the Willington firm – which involved helping run the office, liaising with customers from around the world, inspecting the boats and even driving them occasionally under supervision – led directly to the offer of a full-time job.
Natasha’s success was supported by the NVQ in Customer Service she took at Derby College during her placement.
I knew I wanted to work in customer service but in a role that was a bit different. I love this job. No day is ever the same and there’s always so much variety. My College tutor was really encouraging and regularly came to see me at Avante to go through my course work.
